You’ll Love These Vanilla Oatmeal Pancakes
These vanilla oatmeal pancakes are made without flour and are:
- quick and easy
- fairly healthy
- great for breakfast or whenever you crave a sweeter meal
Even if you don’t make them picture-perfect the first time, they’ll still taste good, I promise!
Oats. This grain is rich in antioxidants, helps with blood sugar control, and satisfies your hunger for a long time. The pancakes made from oats are just as good as the ones made with other types of flour, except they’re more nutritious and if you follow a recipe like this one, can taste much better too.
Eggs. Eggs will help you feel fuller after breakfast. We need them for the flourless pancakes so the mixture holds together, even without gluten.
Yogurt. Adding yogurt together with the baking soda to the pancakes will help them get fluffier and yield a better texture overall. If you can’t have dairy, go for dairy-free options.
Coconut sugar. I personally do not like my pancakes too sweet, so we’re adding just a little bit here for a slight sweetness.
Vanilla. Duh, you saw the name. We need that wonderful vanilla flavor in this healthy breakfast.
How To Make Vanilla Oatmeal Pancakes
Now that we’ve got everything, roll up your sleeves, because it’s time to make the vanilla oatmeal pancakes! Here’s what you need to do:
If you haven’t – grind the oats in your blender, coffee or nut grinder. We need them ground for the recipe.
Beat the yogurt with baking soda for 2-3 minutes. The yogurt will become bubbly and very fluffy almost like a cloud.
Then add in the egg – this will make the mixture more liquid.
Next add in the coconut sugar, vanilla, ground oats, and a pinch of salt, and mix well together.
In a greased nonstick pan with coconut oil begin making pancakes, each the size of the palm of your hand. If your pan is bigger and you’re making multiple at the same time, leave space in between to allow easier flipping.
When bubbles start coming up or the edges look ready, flip them swiftly with a spatula.
Serve right away plain or with some butter on top, they’re very good on their own. If you want to add toppings you can also go for fresh fruit, jam, honey or even chocolate.
How To Store
I can’t believe you didn’t eat all the vanilla oatmeal pancakes and are asking how long they can last for!
Fine, you can store them! Once cooled off completely, you can place them into an airtight container and store in the fridge. If you want to reheat them – you can do it on the stove or in the oven. They’ll still be good, but not as good as freshly prepared.
Toppings And Options
If you want your vanilla oatmeal pancakes with something extra in them, here’s what you can add to the pancake batter before you make the pancakes:
- add in fresh fruit – like blueberries, small apple chunks, strawberry chunks
- throw in some chocolate chips if you’re a fan of chocolate
- maybe even some nuts or seeds
- you can make them fall-inspired by adding some cinnamon, nutmeg and honey to the batter
Other than that, if you go for the original recipe you can top it with berries, apples, bananas, melted chocolate, honey, maple syrup, jam, or my favorite – butter (I like mine more plain).
